Considering motorbike adventure holidays in Tuscany, you must take into account all that happens at the Mugello Circuit. In this case, the adventure motorbike holidays in Tuscany mingle with the roar of the engines even if that is not always the case. In fact, the Mugello circuit dedicates some dates to different sporting events such as race and duathlon.
The splendid small town of Scarperia, where the Mugello Circuit is located, is also a member of the “motor city”. The translation in Italian is “la città dei motori”. It is an association that aims to promote, enhance and protect Italian motoring heritage. This is done through activities and special arrangements with individuals and public institutions. Even the motorbike adventure holidays in Tuscany and Mugello have greatly benefited from the link with the “motor city“.
Scarperia is included in the special list of the most beautiful villages in Italy . Scarperia is renowned for its world class production of knives and cutting tools. The most important sporting event is the International Moto Grand prix taking place in the first weekend of June. This is a giant event gathering a record of 164,000 paying spectators in the MotoGP 2017 at the Mugello Circuit.
